on private equity. it's an issue we have not talked about yet. joining us now is dan primac of "fortune" magazine. >> good morning. >> so fiscal cliff, does it really matter to the world of private equity? >> it matters to the extent of if we go off of it or run into it depending on your metaphor. everyone feels we go into immediate recession, shock recession. it obviously matters because private equity succeeds or fails based on the portfolio companies in a major recession. private equity's a long-term asset class, it can survive as an industry or asset class. cycles better than most can. in general, i think everyone's kind of optimistic, believes something will get done. but there's nobody hoarding money or freaking out yet. >> what about carried interest? we keep talking about taxes and that's one component of this debate. carried interest sort of went on the table, then went off the table, maybe it comes back on the table. but it's not something we're hearing a lot about now. where do you think that issue stands? >> you know, for a long time, i've thought that the issue just works g

down and dan rather stepping in. i think there was competition. there was jealousy. there was envy. uncomfortable about walter having stepped down and dan rather stepping in. i think there was competition. there was jealousy. there was envy. i think on walter's part there was some regret. he was such a young man to leave that job. he was such an icon even in his own day. what made me excited was that, through all of that, the reportg did not change at all. in some ways, it gradually did start to change at cbs. but, for me, i could not believe it. i felt like these people were so professional. i was scared to death. that is a good thing, i think, that you feel like you have a lot of experience and you have done a lot of reporting and producing and you understand television news, but you are surrounded people who are really good and challenge you. i love that. i felt like i was able to learn some of the more traditional values you will at the school that started in our building. i will talk about those a little bit as we go. i also got very fortunate because i ended up overseas withi
